Gabriel Knight Media Round-Up

Oct.24, 2014, under featured, gabriel knight

The 20th Anniversary Edition of Gabriel Knight has been out for just slightly over a week now and reviews have been pouring in from various review outlets. So why don’t we take a look at what some of the reviewers out there thought of the game?&#8220;Sins of the Fathers is an excellent point-and-click adventure offering a strong and engaging story. It quickly takes a hold of you and keeps you coming back to the game until you have finished the game and seen how everything turns out." Hooked Gamers&#8220;It doesn&#8217;t really matter if you&#8217;re an old fan or a new player: Gabriel Knight is still a game worth of your time. And the 20th Anniversary Edition is the best way to appreciate its qualities." Multiplayer.it&#8220;Having a version of Gabriel Knight available which just works like a normal, modern digital game and smooths over some of the more frustrating examples of traditional adventure game puzzling is very welcome. If you’re like me and somehow missed it the first time around, there’s now a straightforward way to put that right. And you should." IncGamers"Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers - 20th Anniversary Edition is the same great game that won over adventurers two decades ago, complete with shiny new visuals, enhanced sound and some interesting bonus features. This a remake done right and the care and attention that has been invested in it will delight existing fans - hopefully winning over some new ones, too." Digital Spy&#8220;A great remaster of a great adventure game, very recommended if you already played it twenty years ago or if it&#8217;s your first time." Eurogamer Spain&#8220;A lovely stroll through Gabriel Knight’s old stomping grounds for longtime fans of the franchise, and an introduction to the series for newcomers" Cliquist&#8220;A more complete remake than most others, and is just as important for a newbie adventure gamer as it is to a veteran clicker" Mouse N&#8217; Joypad&#8220;An enthralling, entertaining point and click adventure game for anyone who loves mysteries, voodoo, and great characters" 30 Plus Gamer&#8220;For many, it’s going to be a fantastic adventure game which will keep you riveted. If you don’t end up begging for a Gabriel Knight 4 after playing this, then adventure gaming is not for you.&#8221; Five Point Review&#8220;The overall story is still more interesting than most games I’ve played over the past few years and stands strong as a testament to what an excellent story with fantastic writing can do. You will find yourself educated in the ways of Voodoun" Region 2&#8220;This is one of those stories so rare in any medium: one from which you, along with the protagonist, emerge feeling in some way changed" Huffington Post&#8220;No matter if you&#8217;re playing it for the first time or if you just want to relive the original, this is a great update of a game definitely worth playing." Vandal Online&#8220;Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers - 20th Anniversary Edition authentically pays homage to its classic predecessor." IGN"To see a game like this warms my heart and lets me know that there are still many great games like it" Operation Rainfall&#8220;The storyline and writing are amazing. I felt fully immersed in the world and the actual history that you learn about the subject matter of voodoo as a religion was very interesting" Calm Down TomIt’s humbling to see that so many enjoyed The 20th Anniversary Edition of Gabriel Knight - Sins of the Fathers and that adventure games can still connect with gamers everywhere. We hope you enjoyed our game and we’d like to thank you, the community for all the support you’ve given us! Until next time.Gonçalo GonçalvesSocial Media AssociatePhoenix Online Studios
